Today we celebrate:

Autistic Pride Day - More and more people are being classified as Autistic these days, and the fact is that autistic people have challenges to overcome in their daily lives that people without autism don’t have to think about. But that doesn’t mean that they are not able to be fully functioning and contributing members to society like anyone else. There are all different levels of autism and sure, there are some who have much harder daily challenges than others, but they are all people and deserve the love and respect that you yourself would expect.

International Picnic Day - Being an international day, you can go wherever your little heart desires for your picnic today. You can stay local or even in your own backyard, or you can go to Besalu, Spain, if you want an out of the way but beautiful international picnic location. And that is only one of thousands or even millions of options.

National Go Fishing Day – Make sure your fishing license is up to date and find out what the fishing rules are in your area because today is a day to break out the rod and reel and head for the water. Fishing is a great way to relax, spend time with the kids and think deep thoughts.

International Panic Day – Back in March we had National Panic Day, but this is a day to take that feeling to a whole new level. World wide panic is on tap for today. Play up your fears big today, and encourage all of your friends all over the world to do the same. Panic about everything. Be afraid, be very afraid!

National Splurge Day – Created by Adrienne Koopersmith 22 years ago, this day goes against my comfort zone. Normally I preach a frugal lifestyle as much as possible. But today is a day to let loose and buy that special thing you have been wanting soooooo bad but you haven't been able to come up with a good enough reason other than that to spend the money. Now you have it. Go get it.

International Sushi Day – Sushi is more than food, it is art. Sushi isn't all about raw fish, it's about the vinegar seasoned rice used in the dish. There are many different variations of this dish in this country with a wide variety of ingredients. I'm sure that even if you are not a fan of sushi, you can find some variation that you will enjoy.

Father's Day – Celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June, this is a day to celebrate the fathers in your life. There is speculation that this day began after a mining accident in Monongah, West Virginia in 1907 when a large group of men, many of whom were fathers, were killed. Much like Mother's Day, this is a day to spend time with your father if you can, give cards or gifts or do something with your father that he enjoys.

Family Awareness Day – Celebrated on the third Sunday in June, this is a day that goes well with Father's Day as you are to reflect on the important role fathers play in our American families.

Husband Caregiver Day – Also going well with Father's Day, this is a day to honor husbands who become caregivers for their wives or children for a wide variety of reasons. This brings the meaning of love to a whole new level.
